Orange picking for Food Share

Food insecurity is at historic levels, sadly this includes our own community.

“1 in 6 people in Ventura County struggle with food insecurity.”

Orca Youth Rugby wanted to help, so we worked with Food Share to pick oranges for distribution.

Labor Day 2020 a group of volunteer consisting of coaches, parents & players got together and picked oranges that were available for donation. Food Share had already dropped off 2 large containers. After 3 hours of work… and sweat… the containers were filled - 1,700 lbs of oranges in total!

It was rewarding experience for all involved, both physically and mentally, knowing we did a little something to help our community in need. No one should go hungry.
